Meditation Assistant Timer

Meditation Assistant Timer


Meditation Assistant is the best meditation timer for Android. Its features (e.g., automatically setting your device to vibrate/silent while you meditate) and customization (e.g., choosing any file on your device as the start/finish/interval sound for your session) make it the ideal assistant to your meditation practice.

This application will help your practice by giving you an easy to read overview of your progress (see screenshots), as well as display your meditation streak. Your streak is calculated based on the number of consecutive days you have recorded at least one session. As your streak grows, "not breaking the chain" becomes quite important. Soon you will be meditating once a day, even if it's five or ten minutes out of your schedule.

A major feature in this application is the ability to share your sessions online. Though entirely optional, sharing your progress online adds another dimension to your accountability. Now that you've gone public, as your streak increases more users will see it as a goal of their own. One user has posted ONE YEAR! of consecutive days of meditation. Could you achieve the same?

Going online is not necessary to gain incredible benefits from Meditation Assistant. Save your sessions locally to your device, and you will not be penalized or harassed in any way. The online community is there if and when you choose to use it.

If you're still wondering whether this is the right application for you, read over the reviews. It was designed with two concepts in mind, simplicity and functionality. Once you've recorded your first session, you will understand why users stay with Meditation Assistant.

Questions? Comments? Suggestions? Feedback is welcome. Several features now implemented were originally ideas posed by users. Email the developer: [email protected]

Great tool I've tried a few meditation apps and this is the best. Feature-rich, yet very simple for daily use.

Useful tool for cultivating habitual meditation Well designed and it doesn't have extraneous add-ons. I haven't used the posting feature, but it is nice to look through others' progress and be inspired to keep up the habit. I especially like the running count of days meditated. The paid version is worth the removal of ads.

Best meditation app for android All the great features others have talked about make this the best meditation app on android in my opinion, and I've tried a lot. What's more, the developer continues to add functionality, and responds well to feedback. My impression is that this is an important project for them, and I really appreciate it. The free version is great, but I'm happy to support this app, and for $1 it's a bargain.
